Examen d’Etat follows a group of determined students on their mission to succeed in the Congolese National Baccalaureate Exam. Students who can’t pay the fees are asked to leave school, but far from giving up, they decide to rent a house to study. Set in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where the ‘Baccalaureate’ symbolizes a path to opportunities and success, this cinema vérité-inspired documentary by Dieudo Hamadi provides us with an intimate view of Congolese society. In English and French with English subtitles.
